March Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the March Stamp of the Month Blog Hop, if you arrived here from Maz's Amazing Creations you are in the right place. If you arrived here by chance just click on the link at the end of this post to continue the hop.

March's stamp of the month is Tea-riffic S1703 and oh my this is a terrific stamp, I loved working with it. It has 11 images and will really impress your family and friends with the lovely projects you will make.

I have made three different cards, this first one will be great to give to a friend, this is based on a similar card I saw on Pinterest. I stamped the cups and the sentiment with the Versamark ink and then heat embossed with white embossing powder. The flowers are cut using the Flower Market Cricut cartridge. I coloured white dots yellow with the Shin Han marker, to add to the center of the flowers.

My second card is what's called an "pop up card" it is my niece's birthday this month and I made it for her. I hope she likes it, I know she enjoys a good cup of tea. This card will fit in a regular envelope when folded flat but will also stand on a table on it's own.

This is the back of the card and the next photo shows how it will fit into an envelope.

This final card was fun to make and will be great to give away to someone that may need a little pick me up. It was quick and easy to make, the teacup is from the Flower Market Cricut cartridge, unfortunately it doesn't exactly match the teacup stamp but it was easy to still use the stamp. I coloured the stamp with a black water based marker and then stamped it onto the cut image. I used the grey and white Bakers Twine for the tea bag string. The inside of the card holds a teabag for that special person to enjoy.

Here are the instructions to make this card, cut your cardstock   3-1/2 x 10-1/2" and score at 3-1/2 and 7". Cut the last panel diagonally.  Run the ribbon under the popped-up front panel and tie. You can decorate your cup as desired. 3 little pink dots finish off the card. The white square on the front is 3"x3"and the black is 3-1/4" x 3-1/4"

I hope you are enjoying this hop, please take a minute and leave a comment, it will be greatly appreciated. Continue on and be inspired by what  Vandra has created.
